Each year, GII invites student teams from independent and public schools across Toronto as well as mentors from U of T to present innovative solutions to a global challenge.
While student teams are primarily working on the challenge, mentors play a key role in guiding them, putting what they learn in class into action and giving teams constant feedback along with sector experts. GII is a rewarding experience with most mentors and students finding this to be a valuable asset to add to their co-curricular record and CVs to demonstrate key skills to schools and employers.
